FORT MADISON – Fort Madison Main Street hosts Mayhem on the Mississippi a 5K obstacle course run on May 13th.

The run will take place in Rodeo Park, a new venue for this event. With the slogan, “First Compete, Then go Eat,” this run is far from typical. Runners will conquer an inflatable obstacle course and jump though tires, and slide to a finish among other great obstacles.

The obstacles are meant to be fun rather than challenging, all are optional.  All ages are welcome, registration ranging from 10 to 64 years old. The race begins at 10 a.m.

After finishing the race you can celebrate by refueling at the Annual Main Street BBQ at Faeth’s Cigar Store, 832 Avenue G. At the BBQ you can enjoy a cold one while listening to music and munching on the finest BBQ around. The Main Street BBQ starts at noon. Make a day of it by visiting downtown shops during The Quilt Walk while attending some of the great events happening that afternoon and evening.
